Disturbing verdict for statutory rape

3:38:00 PM

I am thoroughly disgusted as I listened to the radio news about a rapist who got off so easily from the deed he had done.

Hukuman berkelakuan baik kerana tertuduh tidak mempunyai rekod jenayah dan mempunyai masa depan yang baik?

BOLLOCKS!

No crime record?

BOLLOCKS!

Masa depan yang baik?

DISGUSTING. Thoroughly disgusting.

I remember a similar case that I read about a tenpin bowling athlete, Noor Afizal Azizan. He got off the hook too because the judges deemed that the nation will suffer loses and he also has a good future.To quote from The Star (14th August 2012),

"Also on the panel were Court of Appeal judges Justice K.N. Segara and Justice Azhar Ma’ah.

They agreed with counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik that public interest would not be served if Noor Afizal was sent to jail because he had a bright future.

Both the Sessions Court and the Court of Appeal had considered the fact that sex was consensual and that Noor Afizal was a first-time offender and no ordinary person."

WTH? I mean, WHAT ON EARTH? WHAT PUBLIC INTEREST?

For your information, statutory rape, or sexual assault against a girl aged below 16 — with or without her consent — is punishable with up to 20 years’ jail and whipping.

The judges, of all people should know this tiny little fact and yet this two people walks out as free as a bird from the court. Without whipped arse too (excuse my choices of words).

Is this how we are going to treat a rapist? Is this how we are sending teens/boys a message that ‘sleeping’ with underage girls is VERY BAD even if it’s consensual?


If you are going to be this lenient, I do hope you had a very good reason, judges.

Otherwise, you will be the one who had to answer our Creator when the time comes.



Cik Atun: I agree with Adibah Noor (Via Twitter). If he brings back an Olympic medal also, his crime must be punished. Tak kira la apa jadi pun. Bluerrrkkk!
